A New Era’ Takes You on a Joyful Ride Back in Time – Black Girl Nerds


A New Era’ Takes You on a Joyful Ride Back in Time – Black Girl Nerds

Those nine golden notes of the Downton Abbey theme song are iconic and will hold a special place in my daydreams of traveling around English estates and countrysides. These daydreams only intensify with every viewing party hosted of the Downton Abbey series and the 2019 film, Downton Abbey. Downton Abbey: A New Era is an addition to that list.
